Parachute for Primrose

8 August 2020

Experience the thrill of a lifetime!

If you’ve been looking to put a thrill into your fundraising then a tandem skydive is just for you.

Date: 8th August 2020

Location: Brackley, Northamptonshire

What’s it like

Imagine sitting at the edge of an open doorway in an aircraft flying at 10,000 feet – the noise of the engines and the wind ringing in your ears with only the outline of distant fields below. Now imagine leaning forward out of that doorway and letting go – falling forward into the clouds, diving down through the air as you start freefalling at over 120mph!

Then imagine the peace and quiet as the canopy opens, the steering toggles come down either side of you and you begin a tranquil parachute descent from a mile up in the air, steering yourself back down to the centre of the drop zone below.

What do I need to do?

We ask you to pledge to raise £450 in aid of Primrose Hospice through sponsorship. Please do not be put off by this amount – our helpful fundraising team are here to support you every step of the way and we have a whole section of our website dedicated to fundraising ideas as well as a fundraising toolkit. Every penny you raise over the this will be further contributing to the vital services that we offer at Primrose Hospice.

Breakdown of what is required:

  • You pay £70 (non-refundable deposit) to book your skydive place direct with Skyline Events
  • You raise £450 or more in sponsorship
  • We pay the skydive costs for you

If for any reason you haven’t managed to raise £450 by Friday 30th August we will be in touch to discuss payment options.

Every extra pound you raised over this comes straight to us and really does make a difference.
